Today Room 16 painted some spooky trees for Halloween!
Room 16 have been learning to play tag rugby for the past few weeks and it has been great fun so far. The class are learning lots of new rugby skills (throwing the ball backwards!) and its been great to practice our teamwork too! Great exercise and great fun! Everyone was running so fast the camera couldn’t keep up! 😉
To conclude our sixth class projects on the History of Rathmines Room 14 went on a History trail around Rathmines. We observed the signs of History in our locality and we learned lots of interesting information about the church, the library, the town hall, St. Mary’s College, Belgrave Park, the Bleeding Horse Pub, the Grand Canal, the old Kodak building, the Post Office and even the houses along William’s Park. We were lucky enough to be given some time to have a snack in the peaceful Sacred Space room in Rathmines church. We tracked the route of the Swan River; which now flows underground, examined shopfronts along the Rathmines road and finished our trail in Belgrave park after passing James Joyce’s childhood home on Castlewood Avenue.
The Parents Association in the school organised a fantastic sponsored walk and treasure hunt around the Rathmines area.
Everybody was in great spirits and some boys and girls (and adults) even dressed up in their best costume for the day!!
The 2nd classes used their maths skills to complete a fun maths trail.
Well done everybody.
The Parents Association Christmas Tree of Coins has started again this year.
Remember to try and put any spare coins into your milk carton and when you return them to school on Friday 9th December they will look great in the shape of a Christmas tree!
Don’t forget to make, decorate and wear your own crown on the day and be in with a chance of winning a prize!
Room 15 created symmetrical Halloween pictures this week! They look great!
